this is a great autobiography about america's most decorated hero. having to help his mother raise his brothers and sisters in the depression after his father left them. he quit school and went to work for a neighbor trying to make enough money to help support his family. his mother died when he was sixteen and after enlisting in the army to support his kin he was sent to the war in north africa and joined the third infantry division and stayed with them throughout ww ii. he saw action in sicily and italy, becoming a sergeant and receiving a battlefield commission. during one battle he was wounded and the wound not only ended his chance of going to west point, but ended his military career. audie murphy ended up receiving the medal of honor and ended up being the most decorated soldier in u.s. military history

Given the times and the year in which this book came out, and compared to all the other autobiographies from WWII, this book is literary masterpiece, and always will be. There's no glossing over the truths about the terrible tragedies the soldiers on both sides suffered during that conflict. Murphy has held back nothing, and puts you squarely in the front line with him. This book should be required reading for all students so that they might appreciate Murphy and what people like him have done for our country, as well as appreciating just how terrible wars really are.

"They can kill you but they can't eat you...That's the Law" one quote that I will always remember from Murphy's book. I saw the movie as a kid and after all the books I have read on world war 2, finally I read the master. You follow Murph through his first action in Sicily to his final months of combat in Germany. He cared about his men and and fought to keep them alive. You feel his pain with each loss of his comrades. He realized that war had made him but would not defined him as a human being. As a Vietnam vet I found a profound kinship with this author and his experiences. They are timeless.

I have always been interested in heros. Audie Murphy was a true hero. I enjoyed the book, but in true A.M. fashion, he did not cover the times when he was decorated or for what battles. I would recommend this book for Military lovers. Very descriptive of what the men go through in battles, no glossing over like a movie would.

Audie Murphy to Hell and Back is extremely interesting an eye opener into his life and others along the way. You will understand what a horrible war this was and his part in it. It's a Must read for anyone who is interested Military history especially World War 2.

One of the greatest books I have even read. I love to read about WWII, but I first picked up this book for my Texas History course at A&M. I had to write a review of someone significant to Texas history, but I found Murphy to be overall important to history. This book gives an excellent perspective to warfare during WWII. Highly recommend!!!

It is a classic true war story about an American hero. It shoul remind all of us how important it is to honor and never forget our veterans.

To bad its a paperback.......much more detailed and absorbing than the movie was. This book takes you through some of the bloodiest and toughest battles of WW II. Murphy was a real hero's hero during the time that there was exceptional gallantry every day of the war. Good reading!!

I've actually never read this version. I read the original version which doesn't have the part written by Tom Brokaw. That version was excellent and I'm sure that this one is too.

Written in ordinary, plain English that carries you through a soldier's journey of what almost everyone of us will never experience. Surely we were blessed with a heroic generation of common men who did what they had to do to try and keep each other alive and win a war. How could thank you ever be enough.

Has to be great Some say Gen MacArthur was the most decorated but I don't think so except maybe for politics. Haven't got to read the book but have seen the movie several times and his story is fantastic.
